Survey results: fertilizer recommendations as ratios, percentages, or neither

I asked a question in the MLSN newsletter1 — when getting a recommendation for nutrients, would it make more sense to have that recommendation expressed as a ratio or as a percentage? These are the results.

About 74% of survey respondents are comfortable with ratios, 20% prefer percentages, and I will explain this some more to make sure the 7% not fully understanding this goes down.

For more about this topic, and what prompted me to pose that question in the survey, watch or listen to this ATC Doublecut episode discussing ratios.
